"I'm asking you to participate in a reading exercise. Whatever is by your computer (or that you are reading right now) is what I am interested in. I am going to tag a few people who also write blogs, but if you have a blog and want to play, you are welcome to steal it. And if you don't have a blog or don't have a blog where you play memes, play in the comments. I told you I love to know what people are reading!
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.

"Don't apologize for anything. If you don't highlight your mistakes, no one will notice them."
